City living is busy, stressful and noisy. It generates a lifestyle of haste with an addiction to fast-fixes. It feels impossible to find quiet, to rest and to think deeply.

Our longing is to experience enduring peace, stronger relationships and a better sense of our unique place in the world. To do so, we must hunger for life as it is meant to be—connected to its Source and maturing into fullness and fruitfulness. This requires that we become familiar with silence as a place to visit and feel at home in. For it is in the silence that we encounter ourselves, others and God in radical ways.

Let this volume, movingly told through personal narrative, help you make your way to the land of silence and be amazed at how it impacts your life as you grow in peace, patience and passion.

You've heard his name, you've probably heard your pastor quote him, but who is he really?

250 years later, Jonathan Edwards, America's consummate pastor-theologian, continues to capture the attention of Christians around the world. Yet Edwards left us over 1,200 sermons and thousands of pages of other publications, not to mention the literal thousands of books that have been written about Edwards since he died.

Where does one even begin? That's why we created The Essential Jonathan Edwards. It serves as a perfect introduction to Edwards's life and thought. It explores Edwards day-to-day life, and his views on beauty, true Christianity, heaven and hell, and the good life. Strachan and Sweeney strike the perfect balance between necessary background information and giving Edwards's own works room to speak.

Whether you're an Edwards fan already or only know Edwards because of “that Angry God sermon,” this book will lead you to drink deeply of Scripture and gaze longingly at God.

Foreword by John Piper.

Technology influences every part of society—it shapes the way we think, speak, and act. In our increasingly technology-centered world, we must realize the impact of technology and make deliberate, intentional choices about how we use it.

As Christians, we will always face challenges and opportunities in this digital age. At the intersection of faith and life, we must seek a biblical perspective about technology—for today and for tomorrow.

Burned-out believers and spiritual secularists have given up any hope that an engaging and meaningful spirituality can be found in a single Christian denomination. So rather than attending worship at a local church, they attend to their spiritual needs elsewhere. While these disaffected believers have not rejected the existence of God, they have strongly rejected whatever it is they think the church today has to offer.

To counter this trend, churches across America are constantly updating their culture to accord with the culture outside the church. But is this the best framework for recovering authentic Christian spirituality?

Authentic Christianity offers another idea—that the Lutheran tradition embodies a framework of Christianity that uniquely addresses the postmodern condition. It does so not by being “emergent” or by making up a new approach to church or to the Christian life. Rather, it does so in an unexpected way: by being confessional, sacramental, and vocational.

In this book Adam Hearlson argues that Christians can say a holy “no” to oppression and injustice through the church’s worship practices. “To speak the holy no,” Hearlson says, “is to refuse to be complicit in the oppression and violence of the ruling power. It is the courageous critique of the present and its claims of immutability.”

Hearlson draws widely from Christian history to uncover ways the church has used its traditional practices—preaching, music, sacrament, and art—to sabotage oppressive structures of the world for the sake of the gospel. He tells the stories of particular subversive strategies both past and present, including radical hospitality, genre bending, coded speech, and apocalyptic visions.

Blending history, theory, and practice, The Holy No is both a testament to the courage of Christians who came before and an encouragement to take up their mantle of faithful subversion.

"Domestic violence has been glossed over, set aside, and quite honestly ignored for years. Dr. Ramona is a picture of courage, willing to be vulnerable and transparent through her own painful past in an effort to lift others out of their current dark reality."
—from foreword by Ray McElroy, former NFL player and Chicago Bears chaplain

Are you or someone you love . . .

  • Keeping secrets about your relationship because you feel ashamed or fear no one will believe you?
  • Isolating yourself from family or friends?
  • Permitting yourself to be treated with disrespect, disregard, or disdain?
  • Minimizing or making excuses for an intimate partner's harmful behavior?
  • Feeling afraid of your intimate partner?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above, you may be in an abusive relationship.

The shocking reality is that one out of every four women in the United States will experience some form of domestic violence in her lifetime. Dr. Ramona is one of those women. It can happen to anyone, regardless of race, education, socioeconomic status, or religion.

Abuse breaks the spirit and leaves wreckage in its path. But it does not have to be the end of the story. Healing well and living free are within reach. In this practical book, Dr. Ramona walks with you on a proven path from victim to survivor to overcomer.

This is a must-read for anyone who is suffering or has suffered abuse at the hands of an intimate partner. There is hope!

In their latest release, Living with a Fire, Jesus Culture has captured a collection of songs that carry a message of hope, joy, and a passionate pursuit of the presence of God. There are strong anthems like "Freedom", which inspires us to run to Jesus just as we are and dance in the freedom He has given us! The heart of Jesus Culture has always been to not just sing songs, but to encounter God and see lives changed through those encounters.

In songs like "Anointing" we hear a desire for God above and before everything else. "Be Crowned" is a declaration of God's sovereignty and goodness. This is Jesus Culture's 11th live album, featuring Kim Walker-Smith, Chris Quilala, Bryan and Katie Torwalt, Chris McClarney, and Derek Johnson.

Living with a Fire is an encouragement to the church to invite God to ignite passion in our hearts, to contend for that passion, and to never let the flame burn out!
